Alliance Councillor Billy Webb says he is ‘absolutely delighted’ to get elected onto the new Antrim and Newtownabbey Council.
He got elected on the second count after achieving 830 first preferences.
Mr Webb told The Times: “I would like to thank everybody who voted for me.
“I know we have a tough time ahead with the upcoming Antrim and Newtownabbey but I will give myself 100 per cent to the new council.
“It’s a great gesture of support towards me and I know it comes as a result of my hard work for the Macedon constituency.
“I look forward to continuing to do that for the coming years.”
